49ers Vs. Giants, NFC Championship: Kyle Williams Botched Punt Return [VIDEO]

The San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants were playing a clean game amongst sloppy conditions at Candlestick Park during the NFC Championship game, commiting no turnovers combined through three plus quarters. That was until Kyle Williams let a punt nick his knee, leading the Giants to retain the ball and a lead-changing touchdown pass from Eli Manning.

Here is a close up view of the ball hitting his knee, which is pretty obviously seen from this close of a view.

That unfortunately led to this a few plays later:

The Niners are going to have to pull out another fourth quarter comeback if they want to reach the promise land. Alex Smith figured out a way to do it last week, hopefully he can do something similar this week.
